About financial planning in Harrogate

About Us

We specialise in working with Business Owners in the Harrogate area. We have two particular areas we focus on:

We help business owners plan their retirement and exit their companies earlier, saving them time, making their money work harder and reducing risk so they can retire happy and with more money in their pockets than they had imagined.

We also help business owners going through personal life changes such as divorce which can have considerable effect not only on their personal finances both also on their businesses.

We offer a new, exciting, personal touch to a Financial Life Planning process to clients.

We work closely with our clients to clearly understand their Life Goals and listen to their Aspirations both in their personal life and their business.

We have been providing unbiased independent financial advice for over 10 years and fully integrate our close family values into our client relationships.

You naturally want integrity, attention to detail and complete professionalism in your Financial Planner. At Imagine Financial Planning, that's exactly what you get!

We are members of the following professional organisations:

Irene Bird

Business Support Manager

Having spent many years working in Administration for a large multi-national company, I am enjoying the opportunity to develop my knowledge and skills in Financial Planning whilst supporting both Nigel & Paul and the clients of Imagine. My leisure time is taken up with my love of playing Crown Green Bowls, which I play often. I also stand on the executive committee of my local area Bowls Association. I enjoy spending time with my daughter, Helen, who lives with her husband in London.

Emma Shepherd


I work behind the scenes at Imagine Financial Planning and complete detailed research for clients and support the Financial Planners in delivering solutions to our clients.

We have decided to work closely with the local charity Saint Michael's Hospice.
Saints Michael's relies on the generosity of its supporters to help raise more than 80 per cent of the funds needed to deliver vital service in the local community. Recent estimates show that two thirds of people will need palliative care in the last years of their lives. As more people live longer in the future this service will continue to rise.
" Joining the Business 500 club gives a real satisfaction that Imagine Financial Planning is helping to make a real difference to the lives of local people"

" Nigel has provided us with a range of financial advice for a number of years. Both my wife and I find him professional and reliable, with a real knack for explaining complex financial scenarios and alternatives, helping us to make informed and reasoned decisions."

M Chitty
Realise Developments

"After a bad experience, I was delighted to find a Financial Planner that I could trust in Nigel, you can trust him to give sound advice, good value for money and to deliver on his promises."

D James


"For the past 10 years, Imagine Financial Planning has helped me to manage my finances more effectively and has shown me how to take advantage of various pension and savings contracts."
